Madoff gets 150 years in prison. Apart from the pointlessness of giving an old man a sentence longer than anyone has ever lived it is a lot longer than lots of violent crimer, sexual crime or crimes against children.

The investors from whom he stole are very pleased at the sentence but lets face it, they are as guilty as him. They were greedy, they wanted the high interest rate that was offered, they wanted the returns and they were not too botheresd about how he was doing it. After all it is difficult to scam a honest person.

If it is too good to be true it probably is.
